The signature sounds of Bassnectar will fill the walls of Palladium Ballroom next month, when the genre-bending DJ rolls into town on his Divergent Spectrum tour. Joined by Ana Dia and Superdre, the night promises to be a celebration of diverse beats and crowd interaction.
Bassnectar, whose real name is Lorin Ashton, spins everything from dubstep to punk rock remixes. The Santa Cruz-based artist is just as active socially as he is behind the boards, as he's been a longtime supporter of the Concious Alliance, an organization that brings food to the needy.
The rocky paths notch bare feet as a sea of shoulder, back and leg skin streamlines into the main concert field. Welcome to Camp Bisco.
For three days, three nights, and a lifetimes worth of music, the Indian Lookout Country Club in Mariaville, NY, was filled to max capacity with roughly twenty-five thousand hungry and eager festivalers searching for at least a taste of something not found back in the real world; but that’s only the beginning.
Interestingly enough, with over one hundred performers taking to five separate stages for well over one hundred total hours of live music and DJ’s, the festival reaches far beyond the bounds of simply, ‘checking out music for a few days’.
